DSNY Collection Service Resumes

The New York City Department of Sanitation will resume collection service Thursday, January 28, 2016. Starting tonight, residents should place their trash and recyclables out at curbside according to their normal schedule.

Due to the backlog in material and ongoing snow operations, there will be some delays in collection.

Residents should ensure that their material may be easily accessed and seen by unblocking any surrounding snow.
